By Far Extraordinaire....to much to absorb in one visit. Amazing history of Louis XIV and ornate placements of the Palace along with the vast beauty of the grounds and gardens. Certainly worth a revisit!

So easy we met at an appointed place, and even as we hit traffic and were a bit late, the tour waited on us. Our guide, Jess, was fantastic, knowledgeable and warm. The palace is a must-visit, as are the gardens. Gorgeous classical music plays as fountains dance. Just a great outing.

This tour was great. Our tour guide - Sonia - was amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. There was a slight hiccup with catching the train there as there was train issues so we had to catch a bus and a train but totally beyond her control but she kept us all calm and informed throughout it. Touring the gardens first was excellent and then being given an audio guide to do the Palace at our own pace was perfect. Also given a train ticket ticket to go home whenever we want was excellent as you basically got as much free time as you wanted and had the chance to go back into the gardens. Definitely recommend

Our guide was knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the Palace Gardens. However, the tour on the inside of the palace would have been more pleasant if there had been less people--this is not something Viator controls. An overall good experience.

Great tour of the Gardens - well paced and organized. Self-guided tour of the Palace and back to Paris when we felt like leaving. Lots of flexibility. Highly recommended.

Great trip to Versailles with Jess providing an excellent running commentary on the gardens and the history of Louis XIV and the Palace.
A nice way to see and understand the history and at the same time skip the queue into the Palace.

Our skip the line tour with Sonya was wonderful. We met her at a Paris Metro station and jumped onto the RER suburban train directly to the Versaille Palace. Sonya is Serbian and was trained as an architect but works as an illustrator and tour guide. She speaks English, French, Serbian and Hungarian. She answered all our questions and is knows many stories about the monarchs. She gave us a tour of the huge gardens of Versaille and pointed out many of the subtle details regarding its landscape architecture. Sonya also answered questions regarding the many Parisian districts and their colorful histories. Finally, she set us all up with audio guides for the tour of the palace itself, which was self guided. This tour was wonderful and skip the line is definitely the way to go. You don't want to fight the huge crowds on the trains and at the ticket gates it's a waste of time. Thank you Sonya!

We enjoyed the trip and it was well organized. Our guide Paul was excellent and really informative and helpful. It was well worth the price to skip past the enormous lines of people waiting to get in.

Our tour guide Richard was great, from beginning to end. This trip gave us all the fun and adventure of taking the train, with the reassurance of a guide, and the flexibility to come back at any time. It was a nice, small group and Richard was very knowledgable and passionate about the history of the gardens and palace. The walking and history was a little tough for my little ones 7 and 9 and the only kids in our group but I would still highly recommend this tour AND the skip the line which saved us a ton of time.

The line to buy tickets was about 45 minutes and we showed up and walked right in with the skip the line tickets.

If you are only in Paris for a few days why wait in lines all day!

Do it!

This place is huge! It is easy to see why Louis IVX pretty much bankrupted the country building it. The gardens are very impressive and our guide was very knowledgeable. Thank you Elisabeth. The meeting point was easy to find once we had sussed out the Metro system and having the ability to stay as long as we liked was handy. Please note that you are not allowed to take any food or drink into the palace, so only take what you can sensibly consume beforehand and the café queue inside can be lengthy and the items on sale fairly expensive.

I highly recommend booking a tour! Skipping lines made the visit so much more enjoyable. Our tour guide, Benjamin, was awesome. He was personable, friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed his tour through the gardens.

Overall the experience was great for entire family! Our guide lead a wonderful tour through the gardens interweaving history, architectural understanding, and royal intrigue : The audio tour of the palace was a good way to go at our own pace, and helped with the noise level.

Ben did a great job. He was very compassionate when my mother tripped and fell on the stairs and did everything he could to make special arrangements for us. We didn't have to wait in any lines. Everything went very smoothly.

This was a great tour for my 80 yo spry mother. If you have difficulty walking long distance at may not be for you. I was worried about having an audio tour of the chateau but it was great and enabled to do it at our own pace. A guided tour of the gardens is a must!
